Description

Not the longest line of the resort but a good line mixing steepness, avalanches risk is present as the area is steep and we going into a steep entrance, nothing really worry unless some steepness into this part. Entrance can be taken as cliff by the green slope with some speed if needed, however this is totally optional. Our line will be between trees what make easy to find this one and the navigation, as we are below 1600 meters low snow covers can make it dangerous. Good checked of the winter snow condition is needed. Small trees can be found into the middle of the line, in case of weak snow cover. Remember will finish into a green slope what mean good control needed to void any collisions with some novice skiers. From there you can get back access to the "Plaine Dranse" or "Pierre longue" chairlifts.
